Mayi de la Vega, the founder of One Sotheby’s, and her 30-year-old son Daniel are brokering some of South Florida’s biggest real estate transactions, according to Haute Living.

Launching the company in 2008, amid the housing crisis, One Sotheby’s now operates eight offices and employs about 300 agents, the magazine said.

Despite his youth, Daniel said he has already accumulated 12 years of real estate experience and, as a managing partner at One Sotheby’s, presently manages a $1 billion property portfolio.

Both major art enthusiasts, the mother-son duo is also in the midst of launching the de la Vega Collection, a combination of pieces from both of their private collections, with a focus on emerging, midcareer Latin American artists, according to the magazine.

Their latest project is 1000 Museum, a tower on Miami’s Biscayne Boulevard designed by the Pritzker prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid. “The building itself is a work of art,” Daniel said. [Haute Living]Emily Schmall
